I have no idea if the columnist is right and that Pence would make a formidable candidate for 2016. Truth is I'm about 2+ years away from giving much thought to 2016. However, I would be keen to see how the Irish media reacted to candidate Pence, who is a grandson of an Irish immigrant, and who
spent the better part of a year working in Ireland when he was younger. He bartended and cut turf in County Clare and almost stayed there."Irish" or not, I suspect most in the Irish media would run a mile from the 'teavangelical' Pence.
